Welcome to our website.  We hope that you find it full of useful information and that you enjoy sharing our children’s learning and achievements.  The year group pages provide details of topics which our pupils have studied and their current curriculum areas.  Additionally, you will find the children’s homework activities on these pages.

You may also like to view the ‘School News’ section.  We recently moved into our new school building and pictures of the children on their first day in their new classrooms can be viewed along with some photos of our wonderful school building and grounds.


We were delighted with the results of our recent Ofsted inspection which highlighted the hard work of the children and staff.  The full report can be viewed by clicking on the ‘Ofsted Report’ tab on our Home page.  Thank you to the many parents who have said that they felt that the published report reflected what they had already known about the school.  New documents, which we hope you will find useful, have also been uploaded onto the ‘School Admin’ pages and we hope that you are able to find all the information you require.


If you have further questions about our school contact the staff in the school office who will be happy to help you (admin@albertthegreat.herts.sch.uk) .

Prayer of the Month:

Lord our God,

We thank and praise you for the greatness of your love,

shown to us in Jesus Christ, who was willing to die for us,

to bring us into your family, and to bless us with the life that lasts for ever.


We thank you for the new life we celebrate at Easter;

help us to keep growing in the life that never comes to an end.

Lord, accept our prayers, and be with us now and for ever.
